Shift Into Color With A Fashionable Fade Like Thandie Newton!
Fade Into Ombré
Ombré is a trend that is feminine without being overly floral. Celebrities like Thandie Newton are rocking this popular spring trend, and as a result, these funky fade ins (and outs) of color are unveiling themselves on all of our favorite spring items. Pleated dresses and skirts are shadowed in ombré while patent accessories are popping up in ombré infused styles. Top designers and labels like Prada and J Mendel are showing their color shifting designs on runways and in stores. Of course, more affordable versions are also available from stylish lines like I.N.C. International Concepts at Macys, and the fun and funky store Urban Outfitters. Regardless if it’s breaking the bank or in the budget, there are many options to choose from.
How to Wear Ombré
Before you begin your quest for an ombré item to fit into your spring wardrobe, first examine what items you’re in desperate need of and kill two birds with one stone. For example, if you only have one skirt for the season and ten suitable tops, then you are in need of a skirt and should fill that gap with ombré. This is a trend that is here to stay and will serve you well through the next two seasons.
Once you have purchased your perfect ombré item, whether it’s a dress, skirt, top, or accessory, it’s time to put the whole outfit together. To get the perfect look, follow Thandie Newton's fashionable lead and keep it simple. Pair your ombré piece with neutral clothing and accessories in shades of brown and off-white that have a “safari” feel. The subtle effect will give your ombré item a trendy pop without being cartoonish. Only wear one ombré piece at a time to avoid a trend overload. Dark denim jeans are also a perfect pairing for a casual ombré top. A few gold and silver metallic accessories will complement the subtle gradations of your ombré look. Jewelry in the shades of the fading colors will accentuate the outfit well.
Whether it’s a subtle item or a statement piece, there is an ombré item out there to fit you. Try out this trend for yourself and watch the color shifting magic add instant style to your entire look!
